Huestis, Cardinal Confident Heading into Sweet 16

Posted: Updated:

Man, what a way to end an career. After not making it to the NCAA Tournament in his first three seasons at Stanford, Josh Huestis and the Cardinal are all the way to the Sweet 16.

"It's March, anything can happen," Huestis says.

Yeah, like Stanford's surprising run. But Huestis and his teammates say they aren't surprised one bit.

"We came into this thing going into games thinking shock the world, but we won't shock ourselves type mentality. We expected to make it this far, inside our locker room, we knew we had the potential," Huestis says.

In order to keep playing, the 10th seeded Cardinal will have to beat another Cinderella story, an 11th seeded Dayton team Huestis says will play physical, and like the Cardinal, have more to prove.

"You can't look past anybody in this tournament. I mean, Dayton is coming off two huge wins, Ohio State and Syracuse, beating great teams. Dayton themselves is on a roll right now just like we are, and you can't make mistakes other teams did looking past us," Huestis points out.

Know matter how this ends, the CMR Alum's career will end on a high note. Culminating in a tournament run he'll forever share with his teammates, and his head coach, Johnny Dawkins.

"It's his first time bringing us here, and it's our first time too. So to make it here with him, all the blood, sweat and tears that we've shed with him, it's a great accomplishment," Huestis says.

But don't call it a surprising one. Because it's exactly where Huestis and his teammates expected to be... all along.
